FINANCIAL AID AND VETERANS

Oklahoma City Community College pledges to assist students and families who may need help in meeting the cost of attending college. Federal formulas for determining a family’s ability to finance college expenses are applied to a wide range of factors, focusing primarily on the income and assets of the student’s family, family size, and number of individuals attending college when a family files the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Mission

The mission of Student Financial Support Services (Financial Aid and Veterans Services) is to provide financial assistance for Oklahoma City Community College students enabling access to educational opportunity and in support of persistence toward successful completion of their educational goals. Financial aid information and advisement is provided to assist students in identifying resources to effectively meet college expenses. All Students should apply for financial assistance by filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order to access assistance they may be eligible for.

Financial assistance consists of grants, loans, tuition waivers, scholarships, and work. Assistance offers vary depending on the amount of financial need. In determining need, the College must first consider all financial support expected from the income, assets, and other resources of the student’s family.

Financial assistance is available to degree-seeking students and students seeking certain certificates of mastery from Oklahoma City Community College. Students auditing coursework, taking non-credit classes, enrolling in college classes while still in high school, or merely taking classes, but not pursuing a degree or certificate from OCCC are not eligible for Federal Title IV Student Financial Assistance Programs.
